Cartoonists Joe Heller, Ed Stein and Tony Auth look at the world in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy.

September 13, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His work also appears in USA Today.

As the president mercilessly brainwashed (OK, gently cajoled) the nation's schoolchildren to do their civic duty, and schooled some childish members of Congress to do theirs, another 9/11 milestone passed somewhat quietly. Joe Heller's aftermath recounted the victims, and counted the days. Ed Stein's tunnel vision foresaw countless troubled months ahead. And Tony Auth's getaway-Karzai cast doubt on the count in Afghanistan. Count cartoonists as no-count skeptics.
